Problem 270 | Resultant of Non-Concurrent Force System

Problem 270
The three forces shown in Fig. P-270 are required to cause a horizontal resultant acting through point A. If F = 316 lb, determine the values of P and T. Hint: Apply MR = ΣMB to determine R, then MR = ΣMC to find P, and finally MR = ΣMD or Ry = ΣY to compute T.
